An avid angler and hunter from East Barre, Vermont is the lucky winner of a Vermont lifetime hunting and fishing license. Kathy Robinson, 51, won the license from a drawing of 2,149 lottery tickets.
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department holds an annual “Lifetime Lottery” in December each year and presents a lifetime hunting and fishing license to the winner. This year’s drawing was held at the department’s headquarters in Montpelier on December 12.
“The License of a Lifetime Lottery gives anyone, resident or nonresident, an opportunity to win a Vermont hunting and fishing license that is valid for the rest of his or her life,” said Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry. “Even if you don’t win the license, by applying you have the good feeling of knowing you have contributed to fish and wildlife conservation in Vermont.”
You can enter Vermont’s License of a Lifetime Lottery by adding the $2.00 entry fee when you buy your license on the Fish & Wildlife Department website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com), or by applying at locations statewide wherever Vermont hunting and fishing licenses are sold, or with a printable application also available on the department website. There is no limit on the number of times you may apply during a year.
"I am so excited to hear that I've won", said Kathy Robinson. "I've been hunting and fishing with my family since forever. We always consumed the food we harvested and it's great to know I won't ever have to buy a license again!"
